Before starting this business
proposal project with students, we would like to have guest speakers come to
talk to the children about different businesses that are in the
community. We think this would be a great way for children to learn about
local businesses. This would also spark students’ interests and give them
ideas for their own business proposal. Depending on the number of
volunteers, we will either hold a “Community Businesses Assembly” for all 4th grade
classes or in individual homeroom classes. The presentations
would be held in the afternoon of December 19th.
What we need from parents: presenters! If you, a family
member, friend, your place of work or a business you know of would like to
present to the 4th grade class, please contact Rachael_L_Tedesco@mcpsmd.org
by Monday, December 10th..
Presentations would be roughly 10 minutes per presenter. During
this time, you would speak about what it was like to start a business, what
research went into creating the business, and how you came up with the
idea. If you are interested in presenting, please let Mrs. Tedesco know by December 10th. Thank you again for helping us kick-off
the next phase of our writing unit!
Mrs. Tedesco and
the Grade 4 Team
